There is no action required by candidates at this time and they will receive information about the August sessions six weeks prior to the event.
Novel Coronavirus: Important Updates – March 26, 2020
The NDAEB understands the challenges all DA programs are facing during the Covid-19 crisis. The following information is provided to clarify information regarding the NDAEB and its operations.
- The NDAEB office is now closed in compliance with the Ontario governments directive to all non-essential businesses and services are being offered, to the extent possible, from remote locations. All email and telephone numbers remain in service.
- All registrations for the June CPE and Written Examinations are suspended until April 21, 2020 while the NDAEB implements it’s new on-line registration system.
- We have had a number of questions in recent days about NDAEB requirements for schools to remain exam eligible as they seek ways to continue to deliver their programs.
The NDAEB's requirement for all exam eligible dental assisting programs remains unchanged. All theoretical and practical components of the curriculum must be taught prior to the issuance of a diploma, in order to maintain exam eligibility. To the extent that programs are able to teach theoretical components on-line we support this approach as being necessary under the circumstances.
Should the graduation date of your DA program change please advise us.
- The June 27, 2020 written examination is scheduled to proceed as planned. The NDAEB will notify DA programs and candidates in the event of postponement.
- Due to our office closure we cannot process international applications at this time. All international applications are suspended until further notice.
